TELL CITY – It was a busy year for Tell City’s Building and Zoning office, with five new homes permitted in 2016 along with commercial projects valued at more than $5.2 million.
Building and Zoning Director Bill Alvey presented his report for 2016 at the Jan. 17 meeting of the board of public works and safety. While the number of new homes is not huge, the total is more than many past years. The five homes had a value of $758,000, which will add to the city’s and county’s tax bases.
